Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook will miss tonight’s home game against Vancouver after taking a shot in a sensitive area on Sunday.

When asked if Seabrook took a shot in the ribs, Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville reportedly replied, “Uh, somewhere.”

Seabrook is averaging 23:32 per game, so his absence will be felt. Only Duncan Keith (24:10) logs more ice for the ‘Hawks.

In other Chicago injury news, Corey Crawford “did well” at today’s pre-practice skate, according to Quenneville. The 28-year-old goalie has been out with what the team is calling an upper-body injury (but others are suspecting is a concussion.)

    If only the Canucks still had Salo, he and Seabrook could comiserate tonight.

      Indeed. My first thought in reading this was that I have several “sensitive” areas on my body, including my eyes. Why can’t grown-up coaches, writers, etc., simply say he was hit in his genitals? Afraid of offending someone? Hell, if someone can’t read the word genitals without feeling offended, they deserve to be offended. Good grief!

    …taking one for the team…. United Center will be rocking…Chicago has a history of hating the Red Wings, but there is respect…no one in Chicago has any respect for the Crybaby Canucks.

    The reason they don’t say genitals is because its more fun to make up your own saying, like “puck’n’nuts” for instance

    Dave Bolland said the reason the games are so intense and the hate is there is because the players respect how dangerous the opponent is and skilled. does he count as someone in Chicago who has respect for the Canucks? this is a measuring stick game for both teams.
